The pick up and drop off were excellent. The guide was very good but it was such a shame that a group of guests were not very polite. They continued to talk over the guide constantly to the point I had to make an exit outside, I therefore missed what he was saying. The city was fabulous at night and this cruise was just what we needed after a hectic day. It was sit on the ship and watch a show or get a few more hours in a beautiful city !

Great cruise seeing all the fantastic lights of the major buildings of St. Petersburg. The guide was excellent and very informative. We would highly recommend Shore Excursions to our friends. Thank you so much for the excellent service !

5 StarsAt Petersburg Night Canal CruiseSeptember 26, 2018

Reviewer: Colin Newington
Stunning night canal cruise. This a MUST for anyone visiting St Petersburg. Our young guide was punctual in meeting us at the cruise terminal. Both he and his bus driver kept us entertained with their banter on the journey. During the canal cruise, our guideā€™s commentary on the historic river sites was most informative. We were amazed how the city transformed at sunset. One flick of a switch and the rivers edge was aglow - spectacular! Most of the tourist buildings we had seen on our daylight bus tour became ablaze with colour. This was the highlight of our visit to St Petersburg.

So glad we took this tour. St. Petersburg is so pretty at night. Our guide was fantastic and he gave a great presentation. Would highly recommend this tour. We took it on our first evening. Next day we took the tour of 4 1/2 hours offered by the Cruise Company and it was such a disappointment.
